Green Data Center Team

Bill Tschudi, Dale Sartor, Steve Greenberg, Henry Coles, and Geoffrey Bell—Environmental Energy Technologies Division

Mark Dedlow, Ed Ritenour, and Greg Bell—Information Technology Division

The team combines the Environmental Energy Technologies Division’s expertise in energy efficiency in data centers and the Information Technology Division’s pressing need to expand scientific computing resources in its data center to meet increasing demand. The goal of the Green Data Center Project project was to explore and validate solutions for EETD’s research and to use these solutions to improve operational efficiency in the data center, increasing computational capability. Dozens of individuals and groups from industry, academia, and government have now toured Berkeley Lab's data center as a model for how to green data centers that weren’t built with modern efficiency standards in mind.
